FAO Workshop on Means and Methods for Reducing Marine Mammal Mortality in Fishing and Aquaculture Operations

Rome, Italy

The aim of this workshop is to convene a group of invited experts to review means and methods for reducing incidental marine mammal mortality in fishing and aquaculture operations. The workshop will focus on preventative measures, providing expert analysis on practices that aim to reduce the risk of interactions between marine mammals and fishing gear, whilst also addressing those that minimise the risk of harm and possible mortality when interactions occur. Read the report
